About Blockchains

What is Fantom?

Fantom is a high-performance, scalable, and secure smart contract platform engineered to surpass the constraints of preceding blockchain platforms. Operating as a permissionless, decentralized, and open-source network, Fantom leverages Lachesis, its asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerance (aBFT) consensus mechanism. This innovative approach enables Fantom to achieve remarkable speed and affordability compared to older technologies while maintaining exceptional security standards.

What is Polygon?

Polygon, formerly Matic Network, is a blockchain platform designed to establish a multi-chain system compatible with Ethereum. It employs a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism similar to Ethereum for on-chain transactions, with its native token being MATIC. Functioning as a "layer two" or "sidechain" scaling solution alongside Ethereum, Polygon facilitates quicker transactions and lower fees. Its inception aimed to tackle Ethereum's major challenges, including high fees, subpar user experience, and limited transaction throughput, aspiring to create an "Ethereum's internet of blockchains" or a multi-chain ecosystem of Ethereum-compatible blockchains.
